template<class T >
T & transform (const T &in, T &out, const std::string &target_frame, ros::Duration timeout=ros::Duration(0.0)) const
 Transform an input into the target frame. This function is templated and can take as input any valid mathematical object that tf knows how to apply a transform to, by way of the templated math conversions interface. For example, the template type could be a Transform, Pose, Vector, or Quaternion message type (as defined in geometry_msgs).

template<class A , class B >
B & transform (const A &in, B &out, const std::string &target_frame, ros::Duration timeout=ros::Duration(0.0)) const
 Transform an input into the target frame and convert to a specified output type. It is templated on two types: the type of the input object and the type of the transformed output. For example, the template types could be Transform, Pose, Vector, or Quaternion messages type (as defined in geometry_msgs). The function will calculate the transformation and then convert the result into the specified output type. Compilation will fail if a known conversion does not exist bewteen the two template parameters.
template<class T >

 Transform an input into the target frame (advanced). This function is templated and can take as input any valid mathematical object that tf knows how to apply a transform to, by way of the templated math conversions interface. For example, the template type could be a Transform, Pose, Vector, or Quaternion message type (as defined in geometry_msgs). This function follows the advanced API, which allows transforming between different time points, and specifying a fixed frame that does not varying in time.
